SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – KRON4’s Ella Sogomonian talks with Bay Area rapper, Keak Da Sneak, who survived a shooting in August 2017, but is now in a wheelchair and headed to prison.

He has six days to turn himself in on a previous gun possession charge in Amadour County, despite pleading with the judge to consider house arrest as an option.

“No compassion, they said I wasn’t eligibile for an ankle monitor. It’s not like I’m in a position to run,”says Keak Da Sneak.

Charles Kente Williams, also known as Keak Da Sneak, is heading to prison for 16 months.

The rapper has bed sores, which are hard to treat, and if infected, could be a great health risk.

“I’m curious how they are going to treat me and what’s going to happen once I get in there,” says the rapper.

Keak Da Sneak is credited with starting the Bay Area “Hyphy” movement.

“I have some loyal fans and people in my corner. I want to tell them I appreciate them from the bottom of my heart and thank them for praying for me, keeping me in their thoughs and in their prayers.” 

He has also collaborated with Bay Area rapper, E-40, for the major hit “Tell me when to go.”
